Re: [AlternativeAnswers] Chasteberry Vitex???(female questions)

 

YES YES YES .(hehe)

Chasteberry is a wonderful herb ... absolutely wonderful. It helped me
regulate my cycles, control the moodiness and craziness i felt ..and kept
things more normal.

My kinesiologist gave me the chasteberry and told me to take different
amounts at different times of the month. I took it for a few years ...
recently, i started going to a naturopath who also gave me a "female
formula" (consisting of chasteberry and other herbs to help the cycle) and
it was in a liquid form as opposed to the pill supplement i got from my
Kinesiologist. I Can tell you it was SO MUCH STRONGER and i went from better
to even BETTER !!! (who could have thought?) not only that - but now i NEVER
need to take advil for cramps .... its really quite exciting actually :)
also, i have less mood swings with it... crying ... i feel mentally and
emotionally stronger with it....

If you have any more questions about my experience - feel free to email me
....
